HAVANA, April 11 (Itar-Tass) – President of the Cuban civil aviation
institute Rogelio Acevedo praised a contract, concluded on deliveries of
five Russian airliners to Cuba. Replying to Itar-Tass here on Monday, he
noted that jetliners, produced by Russia, are characterized by high
reliability, economical operation and have quite reasonable cost.

On Monday, the institute and the Russian leasing company Ilyushin
Finance concluded a contract in Havana on deliveries of five airliners
to Cuba: two Il-96-300, two Tu-204-100 and one transport Tu-204S. The
cost of the contract, the signing of which was attended by Cuban leader
Fidel Castro and head of the Russian Federal Industry Agency Boris
Aleshin, totaled around 250 million US dollars.

Acevedo emphasized that the sale to Cuba of a batch of Russian airliners
is profitable both for the Caribbean republic and for Russian makers.
According to the institute president, the inclusion of the airliners in
the aircraft fleet of the island will be a good advertising of this
technology in other Latin American countries.
